DIY: E53 X5 Rain Sensor Gel Pad Repair

DIY Video: E53 X5 Rain Sensor Gel Pad Repair

How to replace the gel pad beneath the rain sensor in a BMW E53 X5. This should also work for E39, E46, and other similar generation BMW. The automatic windshield wiper's stop working when the gel pad bubbles up and the rain sensor cannot get an accurate reading. The bubbling is possibly caused by years of exposure to the sun.

Easy repair, minimal skill and tools required. Can be done in less than an hour and restores a very useful feature.

New OEM BMW Rain Sensor Gel Pad - $15

Plastic Pry Tools - $10
